If Windows 8 run on a Galaxy S3, it sure sell well as fanboys will buy anything that has a Galaxy logo on it.

I think everything depends upon the choice and nature of user. The person sitting next to me in office is Android lover and does not like iOS or WP. Why? because the only job he has to do is to enter the incoming stock which happens twice or thrice a day. So, the rest time he spends upon his galaxy note, playing, watching, customizing.
While on the other hand, I don't have much time in day and even not interested in customization. For me, more important is syncing and integration. So Android doesn't attract me. However, I do like to have the photo of my cute little kid on home screen, so iOS is not a choice too. A big tile will do the purpose.
So, instead of fighting and throwing abuses, we should understand that everybody has own needs.

Even without using or experiencing it people complain about lags in Android. You should use it to know it people. WP8 is definitely amazing. Remember Google, i.e., Motorola Mobility had job cuts like Nokia had some time back. Nokiaís job cuts and Symbian could be blamed for that but Motorola mobility job cuts, not to blame the os android. iOS is smooth? Definitely, it has to be when it has actually got nothing in it to call it a real smartphone. Android offers freedom and more and more people choose android because of the customization it presents. iOS 6 now has features that android or even Symbian had long time back, those feature phones from Symbian never lagged because of the non-dramatic features the phone had to handle. Similarly with iOS, it has nothing great sort of, so it quite obvious it wonít lag. Talking about WP8, itís definitely going to be worth looking for, especially Windows Surface tablets! But itíll take time before it can become an Android killer. We should talk keeping the fanboyism out-of-the-way while comparing OS. Letís talk on the latest and the greatest without being a fan of any one OS or any one mobile phone maker. So whatís best will remain best for couple of years and itíll take time for others to come up with such thing. Experience a jelly bean to know what an Android can do! Moreover, though Iím using android, Iíll be looking to get a surface tablet because thatís going to be a true to computing experience. People here who says Windows are trying to copy iPadís with Surface tablets, you should know that Windows, i.e., Microsoft made the tablet long back before iPad came into picture. Talk with fact people. Do some research or spend some money in your R&D team before complaining.
